We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Affinity Memorial Chapel
Ella Jeannette Galloway, the daughter of late John Willis Galloway and Ella Louis Jones was born in Carbondale, West Virginia on August 26, 1937. She transitioned May 21, 2022 living a blessed life of 84 years.
She received her schooling at Cannelton and at Simmons, later moving to Columbus, OH, where she received her GED. Ella worked in nursing at Montgomery General Hospital in West Virginia before moving to Columbus, OH. Of all things, she loved cooking whereas in Columbus, OH she worked for both Maryhaven and Capital University. She even enjoyed feeding the homeless shelter where she would often show up with her BIG Military pot of compilation she made up from left over scraps. No lie, EVERYONE Loved and Longed for Grand Mama’s Biscuits and those compilation meals weren’t bad either. If you couldn’t find her in the kitchen cooking, she was outside gardening or sitting around somewhere crocheting and likely watching a little tv or listening to some gospel music and most likely, munching on something like a popsicle or candy. Her sweet tooth was undeniable and having some on hand would definitely make her smile and win her over.
Ella was a faithful servant of the Lord and served as a Loyal Member of Apostolic Faith Temple.
Ella was unarguably, the “Boss” and it was hard to win an argument with her. Of all things, She Said What She Said and Meant What She Said and that was understood & adhered to. On the softer side, she loved her family and pretty much touched the hearts of everyone she encountered.
